Beautiful Reminders: Prayer as Purification

Abu Hurayrah, radiAllahu anhu, narrated:

"I heard the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, say: 'What would you think if there were a river running by the door of any one of you, and he bathed in it five times every day, would any trace of dirt be left on him?' And the people said: 'There would be no trace of dirt on him.' He, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, said: 'This is like the five daily prayers, through which Allah, subhana wa ta ala, erases sins.'"
